Look for the Pattern

Behavior has a pattern. 

If there is a behavior you want to know more about, look for the pattern.  Look for what happens right before and right after.  Write it down.  Having several instances of the before and after of a behavior on paper may help you see the pattern.   

If there is a behavior you want to change, look at the pattern.  Is there something that happens before the behavior that can be adjusted? Is there something that happens after the behavior that can be adjusted?  

All behavior has a pattern.  Seeing the pattern it is the first step in changing behavior!
